Italian Crystal alabaster is a stone that resembles ice after it is carved and polished. Of course, the stone has to be free of artifacts or other inclusions which will effect the clarity of the stone. I was lucky enough to come across several large stones to sculpt. This piece was a large rectangular block when I began the sculpture.
As I was working the stone ideas began popping up in my head which lead to the final creation. Since the stone has incredible translucency, I wanted to have it illuminated with color. I chose neon tubing for that effect.
As I continued with my design it was beginning to take shape as large crystal. After drilling into the stone to receive the neon tubing, I decided to use the colors of the rainbow to illuminate the sculpture. When I turned the neon on, the sculpture came to life.  I call these illuminated sculptures; Nocturnal Sculpture. It also had a metaphysical feeling to it so was titled “Chakras”.
